From the Observer magazine:
“…a plethora of other 12-step programmes, including Clutterers Anonymous and Obsessive Compulsive Anonymous – two meetings you hope don’t ever get mixed up or invited over to each other’s houses.”
From the Irish Times birth announcements (fadas omitted apologies to purists):
Cuireann Seamus agus Rhonda an-fhailte roimh Aengus Seosamh Alan, A rugadh i Melbourne, An Astrail ar an 18u Mean Fomhair, 2007. Dearthair le h-aghaidh Annabelle agus Charlotte.
Seamus and Rhonda are delighted to announce the safe arrival of Aengus Seosamh Alan on September 18, 2007…a brother for Annabelle and Charlotte.
Buiochas le Dia”
Does anyone else feel that Annabelle and Charlotte were named at a time when the family felt less enthusiasm for the Irish language?
Betjeman at bedtime, surprisingly pleasant.
